When does human life begin?

Share |

Human life begins at conception, and with the Fifth Commandment God also protects the life of the fetus.

Ps. 139:13,16: For Thou hast possessed my reins; Thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.

Ps. 51:5: Behold, I was shapen in inquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.

Jer. 1:4-5: The Word of the Lord came to me, saying: Before I formed you in the womb I knew you.

When the Bible uses the personal pronouns, I and you, in referring to the fetus, this proves that we were God’s personal works of creation already in our mother’s womb, hence, before we were born.

Assignment: Consider: How we should view abortion from the Christian perspective. What if the fetus is not healthy? Read Amos 1:13 and Luke 1:41-44 and consider what these passages have to say about the question of abortion.
